Just Grillin’: Checking out Guyshi – an immersive Japanese dining experience on West Street
Salutations to Guyshi, a unique Japanese charcoal BBQ and bar bringing an immersive dining experience to the heart of West Street.
WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?
One of the most popular culinary traditions in Japan, Yakiniku dining is a style of cooking bite-sized meat and vegetables on gridirons or griddles over a flame of wood charcoals. Each table at Guyshi has a built-in smokeless roaster to bring diners together to cook and enjoy food. The shichirin grills are imported from Japan, using unique cutting-edge technology to suck the smoke away so clothes or hair won’t absorb any odours. The decadently decorated restaurant is set over two floors separated by a magnificent marble staircase. The sleek and stylish interior, interspersed with mood lighting and striking statement pieces like the large Sakura tree, makes it the perfect setting for a sophisticated meal.
WHAT’S ON THE MENU?
The menu, the first and only one of its kind in Sheffield, will include items such as shoyu chicken, garlic pork ribs, tiger prawns, ox tongue, Angus ribeye steak and premium wagyu A5 steak – the highest possible grade you can get. All meat will arrive at your table raw, though staff will also be on hand to help out with grilling for first-timers, and you’ll be able to cook your own selections to your personal tastes. There will also be a selection of vegetables you can grill, alongside small plates, fresh sashimi, rice, noodles and a set lunch menu. You can even melt your own marshmallow and chocolate to make s’mores!
A ROBOT CAT WAITRESS?!
Orders will be brought to you by a very special member of the team, a sassy delivery robot cat named Yuki, named following a voting process with Guyshi’s online followers. She’ll make sure to look after your food – and can even sing happy birthday! If you’re looking for a real treat, Guyshi has an intimate teppanyaki table giving guests front-row seats to an expert teppan chef putting on a spectacular show of roaring fire, impressive tricks and mouth-watering fun on a traditional hotplate. This experience only has eight spaces per sitting over two slots per day (Tues to Sat) and requires booking.
ALL OF THAT IN A NUTSHELL
Manager Matthew Lay brings it together nicely: “Guyshi brings something special to the ever-growing food and drink scene of Sheffield; we are super excited to launch this new dining concept after the team have been tirelessly working to create an experience like no other. Our expert mixologist has curated a special sake cocktail menu inspired by the different regions of Japan using only the best ingredients or we can always whizz up a classic cocktail if preferred. We also offer a premium selection of wine, fizz and beer. Try our traditional sake cooling tower which dispenses the drink without diluting the liquor. This alcoholic beverage can also be enjoyed warm!”
